I make sculptural kiln formed vessels inspired by my native coastal environment.
Each series, each piece is grounded in a story related to my life. Each vessel acts as a talisman to connect me to beach walks, days rock-pooling, and swimming in the sea.
I utilise handmade moulds, sheet and powdered glass, along with the kiln where I manipulate the effects of time, gravity, mass, temperature and multiple firings to create vessels of unique shape and form. After kiln forming, the vessels are further worked using many cold working processes including, hand lapping, engraving, diamond point and sandblasting.
